Salamba Sarvangasana - Shoulderstand

ALIGNMENT

Lie on your back, inhale, arms press into the ground beside you. Exhale, bend your knees, lift your hips up and roll your legs towards your head. Place your hands on your lower back, fingers facing up, elbows shoulder width apart. Straighten your legs up high, lengthen up through your inner thighs, press through the balls of your feet. Walk your hands down your back towards your shoulders.

Hug your outer hips to the midline, lift your front body up, lengthen your spine. Lift sternum up and towards your chin, lightly press into the back of your head, gaze to your feet. To come down, use your arms to support your lower back and slowly roll back down.
